Schefter on D&C: Packers have edge

ESPN's Adam Schefter made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning to talk about the Super Bowl. Schefter is predicting the Packers to win, 28-24. "They are a better, deeper team," he sad. "I like the quarterback. I just think that they are a tough out."

 

Talking about Aaron Rodgers, Schefter said: "He has been the best quarterback in football over the last 5-6 weeks, period. He is as good as any quarterback in the game right now. He's dominant."

 

Schefter said Pittsburgh's defense could give Rodgers some problems, but the QB isn't like to falter because of the Super Bowl spotlight. "I don't think he wilts under the bright lights," Schefter said. "Could he wilt against that defense? I mean, that defense has gotten to some quarterbacks. That's possible. But I don't think the pressure of the situation is going to affect or faze him one bit."...

Mashup: Packer locates missing father

Packers defensive end Cullen Jenkins used Super Bowl media day Tuesday to make public the fact that he was unable to reach his father, who had been out of touch for over a month. He continued to share his concern during the week and said he planned to leave his father a ticket for the game in hopes he would attend. On Thursday, Jenkins’ brother, Jets defensive tackle Kris Jenkins, told The Associated Press that Darome Jenkins, who raised his sons as a single father in Michigan, had been located by police at his home in Hawaii.

 

“It’s something where I’m just thinking that maybe he’s taking time to himself or something,” Cullen Jenkins had said a few hours before the call came from his father. “Maybe he just pulled back away from everybody right now. Maybe that’s what’s going on. There’s just a lot of questions and unknowns about it. That’s what makes it most difficult.”...

Schilling on D&C: Sox set for 'multi-year run'

Former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling checked in with the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning. A Steelers fan since birth (his father grew up in the Pittsburgh area) Schilling predicts a 31-21 victory over the Packers on Sunday.

 

Asked if he has any hesitation cheering for an individual with a shaky past in Ben Roethlisberger, Schilling said he no longer wears the quarterback's jersey but still roots for the team.

 

"Listen, I played 23 years. I played with some guys who did some pretty bad stuff who were my teammates who I had to treat as family when I played with them," he said. "I can separate the man and the uniform. I'm rooting for the black and gold."

 

Schilling said even if Roethlisberger wins his third Super Bowl on Sunday, he doesn't belong in the discussion about the game's best at the position.

 

Said Schilling: "Sunday, one of two things is...

Ference: B's can't be hypocrites with Paille
By: DJ Bean

Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference didn't beat around the bush after the team's 6-3 win over the Stars Thursday. B's forward Daniel Paille cheap-shotted Stars forward Raymod Sawada with a blindside hit in the second period, and Ference, having seen the same thing happen to teammate Marc Savard last March, was honest in identifying it as a dirty play.

 

"I mean it’s a bad hit, right? That’s what they’re trying to get rid of and you can’t be hypocritical about it when it happens to you, and say it’s fine when your teammate does it," Ference said. "It’s a hit they’re trying to get rid of. I mean you hear it from every player after they do it, they feel bad, and same thing. I talked to Danny and he feels bad. It’s tough, that backchecking forward, to make those kind of hits, it’s so hard to do it in a clean fashion, with the new rules. It is what it is. He hurt the guy, and I...

Julien on fights: Bruins fans 'didn't mind it'

Attempting to put perspective on one of the most physical starts to a hockey game in recent NHL history, Claude Julien said his team responded well to the physical challenge of the Dallas Stars and then went about the business of winning the hockey game. 

 

Thursday's 6-3 Bruins win began with three fights in the opening four seconds, including the opening bout between Gregory Campbell and Stars forward Steve Ott, who leveled Campbell with a head shot two seasons ago when Campbell was with Florida.

 

"Hockey purists know what this is all about," Julien said. "Certainly not a goon show, and I don't think that was purpose of it. It's two teams that are extremely physical and seem to have a dislike for each other whenever they play against each other. In 82 games — and we're in No. 52 — I think this is the first time we've seen this kind of reaction. I'm pretty sure Bruins fans didn't mind it. We...
